    Default Suggestions on a pocket knife?

    I'm looking for a new pocket knife. I've had the one below for years. I really like it but I wish I'd gotten the plain edge. It's a pretty heavy duty blade and what I especially like about it is that, closed, the knife is not much thicker than the blade. One hander. I like the point but I was thinking about trying a tanto point this time. maybe not. Something moderately priced.

    I guess ATS-34 is the way to go.
    0.125" thick blade
    2.75" long blade (<3")
    One hander
    Tang lock?

    Any suggestions? or a couple of brands to look at?

    This is what I'm replacing.

    Check out the Emerson Commander. Best knife I have ever owned, and I carry it every day.

    Benchmade mini Griptilian. I've been EDCing one for almost a year and love it. Being a lefty, the AXIS lock is wonderful. I think the only part of your criteria missing is the type of steel. The mini grip uses 154CM. I have the 556, the tanto blade would be the 557.

    Oh boy are you asking for it. Everyone here has their preferred EDC and will gladly tell you about it.

    I am with you on the plain edge.I agree with Bellypock on the Benchmade.

    My EDC is the Benchmade Osborne 940: Product Details (Benchmade Knife Company - Premiere manufacturer of knives and rescue tools.)

    You never have to pay MSRP for a production knife. There are great discount sites like Knives Discounted at Knife Center that carry everything.

    Here's a previous discussion that you can look at for a while: http://www.straightrazorplace.com/fo...edc-knife.html

    I like a larger framed knife for my EDC it is still legal as far as blade but has a very nice sized handle, it is the SOG Trident Tanto blade very comfortable to hold and use. The one bonus is that it is a spring assisted blade action so it can open very quickley with one hand, and also very convinent for ambidextrous use.
    I would agree with icedog look at knifecenter if you have never looked there you will be amazed.

    I use a Benchmade Min Grip 556 also. Great Knife. I have a Kershaw Ken Onion Chive also, it is small but has a really cool assisted openig feature and it holds a great edge as well.

    I'm very fond of Kershaw stuff too, but nothing serrated. CRKT make some great value stuff that you can get over if you lose it, but i'm guessing you're after something a bit more special.

    I just treated myself to a little Boker Congress pattern pocketknife. I wanted a little "whittling" type knife and the 4 bladed Congress design seemed well suited. This is a knife I wanted since childhood. I got the tortoise pattern and with the old style Tree Brand logo on the blade instead of the newer frosted style. I paid $38 for it and am thrilled.
